Golden Key Awards
Every year the Utah Governor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities and their partners honor people and businesses with the Golden Key Award. It recognizes those who have helped promote employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), signed into law on July 26, 1990, is one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation. Modeled after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the ADA is an “equal opportunity” law for people with disabilities.
In honor of the ADA, the Governor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities and the Utah Business Leadership Network, UTBLN, invites community members to nominate local businesses that have gone above and beyond in their recruiting, hiring, retaining and promoting of individuals with disabilities.
